Spring is a time for decluttering, an easy–breezy new wardrobe – and generally adapting to lighter, brighter days. So, let’s not leave your hair out.
If you want to give your hair a lift – just a little something extra – but don’t want a drastic change, here’s 5 trending ways to hit refresh on your look – so you slide on into the new season with an added – spring – in your step.
1. ADD (LONG) BANGS
We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: Adding curtain bangs are the holy grail to framing your face and contouring your features. Just check out Suki Waterhouse at Sunday’s Oscars, and you’ll see what we mean. The bangs can be medium length (say, around ear height) or long enough to tuck behind your ears. But the point is, they create built–in shape and structure, which means you only need a few minutes with the Air Dry Kit to style and go.
2. GET SUNLIGHTS
If you’re wondering whether to get highlights or balayage, spring is the perfect time to pick the latter. A great colourist will tailor your balayage to your skin and overall vibe, adding colour in such a way that it looks like it’s been tickled by the sun. A bit like getting a healthy glow – but for your hair.
3. PERFECT YOUR 3–MINUTE BLOW DRY
Maybe you want smoother hair, or a little more shape and movement. Just a plum–sized amount of Zhoosh Foam is all you need before blow drying to get effortless root lift and volume. And if you like something quick and natural, this masterclass is your simple step–by–step to perfecting your 3–minute rough dry technique.
4. GET A DRY CUT
As this season’s hottest trend, Dry Cutting brings out your hair’s natural shape and texture to create an effortless lived-in look. It’s cool, with hints of French girl vibes (think Caroline de Maigret and Lou Doillon). The best thing: the cut does the hard work for you. Just arm yourself with the Great Hair Kit and head forth into a new season looking and feeling refreshed.
5. SWITCH–UP YOUR PARTING
So simple, yet so easily forgotten. Changing your parting from a classic centre part to a side part with a flick–over creates a big difference. It looks effortless yet oozes confidence – and means you don’t even need to lose any length.
